Paula Deen Has Diabetes

Paula Deen announces she has diabetes and has no plans to change her cooking.

Deen, who is famous for her use of copious amounts of fat, butter and sugar, encourages moderation in her defense.

Deen has also signed on as a paid spokesperson for Novo Nordisk proving that she is more interested in being part of the problem than a part of the solution to the diabetes epidemic.

While Deen’s recipes — which promote prodigious amounts of butter and fried foods — may not specifically cause diabetes, eating that kind of high fat and high sugar food regularly can make it very difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

And for people who did inherit a susceptibility, lifestyle can make a difference. That means they may stave off diabetes by maintaining a healthy weight and exercising regularly.
